Kamen Rider Live 2000
anyway. this is chock full of great songs and artists. I'm not incredibly impressed with Rider Chips but they are a competent band. it's great fun seeing Mitsuko Horie perform,. she must have been about 12 when she started singing these songs, she doesn't look old at all. she has a stage presence that blows away most every one else that performs, with about three exceptions. guess who they are?
the stage battle is a lot of fun. Ikadevil is menacing the crowd and then Takeshi Hongo/Kamen Rider 1 (Hiroshi Fujioka) shows up. Nigo Rider also appears and they battle the aforementioned minions. later, when the forces of evil appear to be too much for our heroes, Shiro Kazami/Kamen Rider V3 (Hiroshi Miyauchi) also appears to help out. and then at the end, the newest Rider at the time, Kuuga shows up to defeat Ikadevil.
both Fuijioka and Miyauchi sing their respect theme songs as well.
just can't believe it's been so long.
